Workshop on Climate Change Cooperation

This workshop aims to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to build a research community at Columbia that is interested in exploring questions of cooperation, justice, and security in the domain of climate change. Our goal is to spark dialogue and new work that investigates how states and other civil society actors (either at the sub-national, national, or international level) seeking to combat climate change can respond to individuals and communities that are poised to be impacted both by climate change and by climate change mitigation policies.

Workshop on Political Psychology

This Workshop on Political Psychology brings together local political psychologists twice a year to discuss a small number of papers and to talk about political psychology more generally. The workshop provides an opportunity for people with similar intellectual and research interests to present work in progress, talk informally among themselves about developments in the field, discuss common issues of concern, and provide others with potential collaborators.
